The Free Software Song is a filk song by GNU/EMACS guru Richard M. Stallman. The song is usually set to the traditional Bulgarian melody of "Sadi Moma" but PST developed their own tune instead inna reverse-engineery stylee. This version has Chris Hughes (of Berlin's Methylated Spirits) on second git - except the solo which is by Sehguh Sirhc. Visit www.pinkstainless.net for more lifestyles of the Pink and Stainless...

Easily the best song about software I have ever heard!
This makes me want to start a GNU/Linux themed podcast so that I can use it as my theme.
Simon Strong describes himself as "a FUCKING GENIUS". I see nothing here to contradict that, and I think he's absolutely correct that.
1. That was a good movie.
2. That was a lame-ass song at the end.
3. This is much much better.
The lyrics were written by Richard M. Stallman, who is a FUCKING GENIUS for sure, although I think that when they named us all "geeks", it was a kind of a tribute to RMS, the greatest geek of all. Check out some of his lectures on archive.org, and share the motherfucking software.

FREE THE FREE SOFTWARE SONG FREE
I watched "revolution OS" and thought it was the best doco about GNU/Linux but let down by that kinda lame version of Richard Stallman's filk/anthem at the end. I called in one of the top groups of the hemisphere to record a new version with which to overdub. HUGENESS! does not even require the movie... Very innaresting backwards git work during the solo. FREE EVERYTHING FREE!
